Folding tulips

Design: Piet Design

Paper folding flowers.

No Netherlands without tulips. Yet the tulip originally did not come from the Netherlands, but from Turkey. Although images of the flower were known in Europe from the early 16th century, it was not until 1594 that the first blooming tulip in the Netherlands could be seen in the Leiden hortus. was stolen. And the legend goes that that night tulip cultivation in the Netherlands started.

In addition to ordinary red and yellow tulips, beautifully drawn specimens with lines and flames also appeared – as it turned out later due to a virus. As a result, the fascination for the flower only increased in the 17th century. The unpredictability of the sphere made it the subject of speculation and eventually wind trade. The most prized tulip Semper Augustus was sold for the price of a canal house. On February 24, 1637, trade collapsed and the tulip returned to calmer waters.
